Indonesia Uwu #03 Filter
The Uwu #03 comes from the Tuang Processing Centre, a place that Catur considers a “staple” in their competition choices, from the Indonesian Barista Championship to the World Barista Championship. Grown at 1400 - 1700 masl, this coffee is an anaerobic natural coming from small-holder farms in Uwu (Manggarai, East Nusa Tenggara).
Made up of Catuai and Kartika varietals, this yeast fermented coffee is filled with notes of tropical fruit, spices, and heavy funk - exactly what we expect from Catur's crazy Indonesian lots.
Catur’s definition of themselves as Agents of Change is a slogan which comes from a place of authenticity. The work Catur are doing within Indonesia is changing, developing, and positively impacting the lives of farmers. I had a big deep dive into Catur when we got 3 of their lots in, and their story is fascinating and well worth taking the time to look into. This documentary on their work (click here!) in Indonesia is a great watch to learn more about the social impact they have and the ideology behind bringing experimental processing to the fore in Indonesia.
